The part where it says that rev. 1.3 cards cannot handle symbolrates
 < 8 MBaud is _wrong_. Well, at least my rev. 1.3 card can handle low
symbolrates. The budget card (SS2.6B) is better, but the 1.3 card often
works fine as well. But: the symbolrate must be entered absolutely
correctly: a off by 1k can/will result in a tuning failure.
